Ami at one of Finca Rio Perla's cool streams
I am really glad to finally be writing this first post!
I am still not sure what this CostaBlog will become, but I am really hoping that it will be a place where people that have – or will – be going on a Costa Rica Caribbean Experience can share information, thoughts etc, as well as a place where I will be able to update readers about what is new with us, as well as news from Finca Rio-Perla and general news from this part of Costa Rica that I think is worth sharing.
Next month it will be as year since the idea for the Experience was conceived, when I visited Dr. Paul Siegel for the first time on Finca Rio-Perla. It was January, and Washington DC was extremely cold when I left it for Costa Rica. The contrast could not have been bigger- two days after enduring the sub-zero temperatures of the Mid-Atlantic, I was walking barefoot on the beach of Cahuita National Park – a gem on Costa Rica’s Caribbean, splashing in the warm waves. I immediately fell in love once more with Costa Rica.
It had been almost 13 years since I visited this country last, but I always had a longing to return – Costa Rica for me was, since visiting it for the first time – a sort of earthly paradise, a place where one could find jungles, volcanoes, adventure, exotic animals and lush trees. A place where it was always summer, the people were (mostly) happy and the vibe was chill. It is this place and these memories that I thought it would be great to share with others through the Costa Rica Caribbean Experience.
Here’s to a happy new year, Costa Rica style!
